The footage, captured by the United State’s Geological Survey’s (USGS’s) Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, shows the ferocious spray spilling into the sea non-stop.
Researchers reveal that the lava caused such intense explosions that debris flew into the air at twice the size of the sea cliff.
Geologists made the incredible discovery last weekend when the piping hot lava with temperatures of 428 degrees Fahrenheit (220 degrees celsius) was seen scolding the ocean.

According to the USGS, the lava is so hot and intense that it is making the sea cliff unstable.
There are even fears that the sea cliff could collapse as the ground is not secure.
It’s thought that the molten lava started pouring out of the crack on January 28 and has been continuously flowing into the ocean ever since.

The large stream is estimated to be at least one to two metres wide, according to the US Geological Survey, who are carrying out further tests.
A spokesman for the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said: “At Kilauea’s ocean entry on January 28 and 29, the interaction of molten lava flowing into cool seawater caused pulsating littoral explosions that threw spatter (fragments of molten lava) high into the air.
“Some of these incandescent clasts fell on top of the sea cliff behind the ocean entry, forming a small spatter cone. During one exceptionally large burst, spatter as thrown about twice the height of the sea cliff.

“These ocean entry littoral explosions, both large and small create hazardous conditions on land and at sea.”
Geologists, wearing protective gear, launched a probe to discover more about the lava on January 28.
They discovered that the crack in the wall was around 11.8 inches (30 centimetres) wide.
But they faced serious security concerns because the ground was so unstable.
